AbstractIn this chapter, we present two applications in information fusion inorder to evaluate the generalized proportional conﬂict redistribution rulepresented in the chapter [5]. Most of the time the combination rules areevaluated only on simple examples. We study here diﬀerent combinationrules and compare them in terms of decision on real data. Indeed, in realapplications, we need a reliable decision and it is the ﬁnal results thatmatter. Two applications are presented here: a fusion of…
